Good Old War Part Of Me EP

According to the National Center for PTSD, a program of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, about seven or eight of every 100 people will experience PTSD in their lifetime. Women are more likely than men to develop PTSD. Certain aspects of the traumatic event and some biological factors (such as genes) may make some people more likely to develop PTSD.

Some people with PTSD may be living through an ongoing trauma, such as being in an abusive relationship. In these cases, treatment is usually most effective when it addresses both the traumatic situation and the symptoms. People who have PTSD or who are exposed to trauma also may experience panic disorder, depression, substance use, or suicidal thoughts. Treatment for these conditions can help with recovery after trauma. Research shows that support from family and friends also can be an important part of recovery.

The National Center for PTSD, a program of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, is the leading federal center for research and education on PTSD and traumatic stress. You can find information about PTSD, treatment options, and getting help, as well as additional resources for families, friends, and providers.

Clinical trials are research studies that look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat diseases and conditions. Although individuals may benefit from being part of a clinical trial, participants should be aware that the primary purpose of a clinical trial is to gain new scientific knowledge so that others may be better helped in the future.

As a human, she didn't do anything particularly bad to warrant her afterlife fate, but because she had the unfortunate luck of being in the company of a guy on Wyatt Earp's "shit list," she became a revenant.

When Adams became President, the war between the French and British was causing great difficulties for the United States on the high seas and intense partisanship among contending factions within the Nation.

Big exercise with 20,000 troops coming across the Atlantic, and this Transatlantic Bridge was a vital part of our efforts in World War I, and in World War II in our combat operations in Europe. And I think it's just as important today as it was back then.

Back when I lived on Fort Myer, that's when I learned that your father, Sixtus Petraeus, came from the Netherlands. And he was a part of that relief effort and the convoys of World War II. Can you please tell us a little bit about your background, your dad's coming to the United States and how he came to be involved in the convoys?

GEN PETRAEUS: Yes, on that particular convoy, he had a torpedo literally -- that they saw that went under their ship and it literally did not explode. It didn't detonate. It malfunctioned. And his First Mate who actually was the one that saw it first, he was the Captain of that particular ship by that time, I believe. And he saw this and was speechless for quite some time after that because as you know, if you go into the water, you're finished pretty quickly because of the, essentially the icy nature of it even during the summer.

ADM FOGGO: Wow. That's a compelling story, especially the story of the torpedo. I can't imagine actually watching that and you know, having those thoughts go through your head of what happens if it goes off, and thank goodness it didn't, sir.

ADM FOGGO: Absolutely, an essential part of the mission, then, as it is today and delivering all of the people and the material that we use to deter and defend in the Euro-Atlantic Theater, which is kind of our mantra now.

GEN PETRAEUS: I thank you for what your dad did during that time and all those who were with him from all the countries that were part of the liberation of Europe, and many of whom actually were also transported across the Atlantic on Liberty Ships and a variety of other ships that were repurposed for that particular task, and my dad did some of that, I believe, as well.

I know he shipped just about everything over the years in these extraordinary boats, the Liberty ships, you know, relatively modest in size, I think about 14,000 tons in displacement, 140 feet or so, and relatively slow. You know, sailed at 11 to 12 knots, which made them pretty good targets.

And then they would get together, of course, and remember the good old days or the challenging old days as the case may have been. But there was one other story that I remember he told me and it also reflects just sort of the Dutch approach to life.

My dad went, all throughout Northern Europe. He used to say he crawled across Northern Europe. After he hit the beach and he moved into Belgium, he was part of the Canadian Force that liberated Bruges, which was an incredible story.

And part of that is told in "The Monuments Men" about what the Germans did and how the Germans did not want to flatten the city. The Canadians were ready to just flatten the city with artillery and thankfully, they didn't. It is, as you know, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.

GEN PETRAEUS: It's an extraordinary alliance, I've been privileged to serve in a number of occasions, beginning with my first assignment to an Airborne Infantry Battalion in Vicenza, Italy where it was part of the Allied Command Europe Mobile Force Land with a lot of exercises throughout Europe. That was of course the Cold War Europe. I returned as a Major to be a speechwriter for the Supreme Allied Commander in Europe then served in Infantry Battalion as a Battalion and Brigade Operations Officer.

I have an enormous respect and abiding admiration for the Alliance and for what it has done over the decades. And, frankly, it has been great to watch the Alliance respond to the latest challenge. The first really significant challenge in Europe since the end of the Cold War, and that is, of course, the Russian challenge that has reemerged, if you will, and demonstrated in the invasion of part of Ukraine, threatening the Baltic States that are NATO members.

I like to say, in this great power competition that we're in, part of our national security strategy that you know, we've re-entered the fourth Battle of the Atlantic, it's pretty sporty out there. The Russian submarine force is a very capable force and they challenge us every year and we rise to that challenge, and we maintain the competitive edge both in our submarine forces and we also have four Burke-class Destroyers forward deployed in Rota, Spain, which is a wonderful place to operate from.

But at the end of the day, I think NATO is, as former Secretary and my former shipmate Jim Mattis used to observe, the most successful alliance in history. And in many respects, it has been given a new reason for living given the threat from Russia, and also the other challenges to our allies in Europe in particular, whether it is massive refugee flows, Islamist extremism, or a variety of other security issues that can best be dealt with by an Alliance rather than by countries acting individually.

After the fire, the staff was gone on the LAPL winds and I ended up at the West LA branch while others spread across the landscape including the infamous Rio Vista warehouse over off Soto Street. After happy years at West L.A., I was forced to return to the misery of the Processing Center next door to our temporary home on Spring Street in 1989. Even though we were thrilled to be reunited with our dear old book friends 433 Spring Street was even less suitable as a library than the pre-fire Central. Besides introducing us to the computer as reference tool our time on Spring showed the seedy side of libraries in the inner-city with an exclamation point. The plan was to reclaim Spring to its former glory when the Stock Exchange and Theater Center blended commerce and culture but it was mostly drugs and depravity that held grip on those blocks. We traveled in packs on gritty Broadway and learned to walk long distances to find lunch or relief from the mean streets. Basically, we were in a holding pattern until we could get back to the real Central. When the library closed Spring Street to begin the move back home I ended up over at the good old Rio Vista warehouse for a project of transferring the tattered historic photo collection from the Los Angeles Herald Examiner into archival envelopes and boxes. We paced ourselves but finished a few months ahead of schedule whereupon I was placed once again at a branch, this time at Summertime Granada Hills where I discovered a great staff and San Fernando Valley heat.

SCHULZ: It was just a natural thing that I always said. If I was playing golf, and I missed a three-foot putt, I might say, oh, good grief, you know. But I've never been one who swore. I've never liked ugly words. I have nothing against - you know, I'm not a purist in that way. But I like words to a certain extent. I'm not well-educated so that I'm an expert on them. But I've never cared for any type of ugly language, even words that are not considered swearing words.

SCHULZ: I think there's no doubt about it. I doubt it that - I doubt that it would be possible to do something every day with a group of characters such as I have, without each one of those characters being a little bit of myself or being a little bit of the creator. I think this is the only way you can do it. This is why I suppose the characters do change little by little. I try to be consistent in their personalities, but I also think that none of us is ever really consistent in the things that we do and say. We all have our little good points and bad points, and this is what the characters have.

SCHULZ: Not as much as people like to think. It just makes a good story, of course. I have not been the loser that Charlie Brown has, although I can remember certainly losses in both baseball and golf and hockey that go back 50 years, and I'm still suffering from them. I think Charlie Brown and I are alike in that we are both fanatics about certain things. I was the same sort of little kid that Charlie Brown was. I looked forward to the baseball games that we were going to have, and if it was raining, I would have been the kind that would have stood out in the rain and saying, where is everybody going? You know, let's play the game. Come on, let's go.
